You can live in a city your entire life, thinking you know it backwards and forwards, but sometimes you’ve barely scratched the surface. Andrew Wonder’s Undercity is a documentary that truly stands above and beyond in terms of its scope and ambition. He joins urban historian Steve Duncan in a journey beneath and above the streets of New York City. The duo explore forgotten train stations from decades ago, visit the city’s first sewer, talk to the homeless living within Amtrak tunnels, and climb the Manhattan Bridge. All of this is done without city approval, in increasingly perilous conditions. It’s a stunning look at the hidden history of NYC and is a must-view for any New Yorker.
